CSP #6: A tribute to Amy Krouse Rosenthal: Make the most of your time here.

You likely saw her piece in the NYtimes Modern Love this week entitled You May Want to Marry My Husband. It’s heartbreaking and beautiful and if you haven’t read it, please do so that you can have this window into her gorgeous heart.

This is an interview I recorded about 10 years ago, when I thought I had all the time in the world to continue to get to know Amy and celebrate her work. It is with great love and admiration that I bring you this little time capsule of an episode. It is one tiny thing I can do to honor her magic!
